My Name is Jim I live in North East Pennsylvania I just purchased a very lightly used Landmann 40" electric After purchasing this smoker which sold currently at homedepot for $600 I got it for $150 on craigslist. The reviews after buying it are scattered so as soon as the temperature gets back to + numbers here i am going to give it a try. The smoker was used 3 times and the racks don't look like anything was on them. The wood box has some stains but for the price I thought jump in. Fingers crossed and looking to learn more here.
